Elliott, This company is actually about 20+ years old. A guy named Whitener?, bought the rights to the 300B tube along with the manufacturing equipment from Western Electric back around 1997 or thereabouts. Then he found a group of retired WECO manufacturing folks who had built the tubes and had them start building them again. He used to be in Atlanta, but he has since moved to another location in Georgia. The tubes are very expensive!

I have a friend who was his partner at Peachtree Laser, he eventually bought Charlie Whitener out many years ago. Good info on their website, but the pix of Charlie in the company info is several decades old, kinda odd.
